i3ARCHIVE, Inc. and IBM last week announced plans jointly market commercial disaster recovery and business continuity services to the medical imaging industry. Under this new agreement, i3ARCHIVE and IBM will focus on building awareness around i3ARCHIVE’s on-demand, enterprise scale, medical imaging data management services, the companies said.
"Given the critical nature of disaster recovery in healthcare, i3ARCHIVE has chosen IBM hardware, middleware and services for our reliability and scalability," said Mike Svinte, vice president for IBM Information Based Medicine. "Together we are providing small and medium hospitals, clinics and others the disaster recovery tools once only available to the larger institutions."
Last fall i3ARCHIVE announced that it had extended the capabilities of its GRID-based medical imaging architecture to service the needs of business continuity and disaster recovery for PACS.  In doing so, i3 exceeded the HIPAA requirements for data recovery and provided an unprecedented ability to provide ‘fail-over’ access to a replicated, virtual instance of an existing PACS environment that can be utilized during periods of unavailability or inaccessibility.
